In a earthquake rich state, fracking seems like a bad idea.
Newsome could lose the vote of all the people who are huge fans of fracking!!
We love earthquakes and poisoned ground water! You can't take that away from us!
Wait a minute, this thought just occurred to me....
Did you two folks not realize that Fracking has been allowed and has been happening at hundreds of sites across California's oil fields for over a decade??? And that even during the Gavin Newsom administration, Sacramento has been approving dozens of new Fracking well sites each year???
And they've been Fracking here for years, and we are all still here. Drinking ground water daily, and not falling into the ocean daily. Despite the widespread use of Fracking across California. Some Fracking wells are literally just a few miles north of Disneyland in Orange County.
You both knew that, right? Or did you think Fracking was something only naughty Texans did?
Yeah, I don't like Newsom and I don't like fracking, the two aren't mutually exclusive and I know there are people who have jobs that depend on fracking, but we need to come up with a better system as it is damaging our environment dramatically.
How so? Fracking is a modern miracle that has been happening in the USA for over 15 years, and in California for over a decade.
What water supply in California has been poisoned because of Fracking? What environmental damage has been done that isn't done by traditional oil and natural gas extraction? Do you not use oil or natural gas? Because I do. I use both daily; they heat my home, power my cars, cook my dinner, warm my shower, and comprise countless amounts of plastics and consumer products and pharmaceuticals inside my house that I use daily. Even some of the clothes I wear have petroleum products from Fracking in the polyester fibers. (Though if you corner me on it, I'll claim I only wear cashmere and silk.)
How do you live a life in the 21st century without using petroleum products???
